In a sad turn of events, a soldier, Army Spc. Patrick Edward Myers, was taken into custody by police officers in Texas after he was accused of shooting his friend during a joke that went horribly wrong. The friend is also another member of the military. According to reports from the Associated Press, Myers pointed his gun at his friend’s head in the hopes of scaring him enough so his hiccups would stop.

The soldier, 27 and stationed at Fort Hood, thought his gun was loaded with dummy rounds. The gun then went off in the face of his friend and it actually had live rounds in the gun. A statement released by the Killeen Police Department said that Myers was “handling it in an unsafe manner.”
